What is the EcoPledge?

The EcoPledge: a commitment made by schools, corporates and individuals to save on one or more of the earth’s resources.

The EcoPledge Program was created by HeroesToo to encourage individuals to commit to a change towards a more sustainable lifestyle and behaviour resulting in a reduction of their carbon footprint. Through empowering schools, companies and individuals, HeroesToo channels the collective energy of the community to create a significant response to environmental threats facing humanity today.

In taking the EcoPledge, individuals are taught how to reduce their negative impact on the environment and even contribute towards positive change within the community and globally. Additionally, in taking the EcoPledge, students participate in EcoPledge workshops to learn how human activities have impacted and damaged our world, and to take action on solutions to live a sustainable lifestyle. The programme aims to help schools find ways and get involved in reducing their carbon footprint by educating students and providing guidelines to improve the school’s environmental sustainability and reducing resource consumption by hands on involvement in a sustainable life project. In the EcoPledge Program, schools are able to reduce 5% or more of their yearly energy usage and paper costs.

By supporting the EcoPledge Program, companies have a better  insight and understanding of the true meaning of CSR, reduce their own resource usage and provide financial support to fund the school programme whilst gaining valuable brand exposure for a great and meaningful cause that has a direct impact on the world we live in.
